By  | 

SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb. (by Release) - It’s that time of year…We’re freezin’ for a reason! The local committee to benefit Special Olympics Nebraska will be holding its 7th annual Panhandle Polar Plunge Saturday, February 24, 2018 at Riverside Park in Scottsbluff.

Those brave enough to run into the icy waters of the river are invited to join the committee and Special Olympics athletes to raise money for Special Olympics by collecting pledges and coming out to plunge. Plungers are encouraged to form teams and dress in costumes. Prizes will be awarded for raising pledges and creativity.

Registration begins at 9:30, and the Polar Plunge begins at 11 a.m. at the pathway parking area in Riverside Park. There will be a post-plunge party immediately following the event at the YMCA camp.

We encourage individual and team participation. Each plunger is asked to raise at least $50 in donations. Incentives begin with $75 in donations. Individuals and teams can register at the Firstgiving page.

There is a link to Polar Plunge information, registration forms and contact information on Scotts Bluff County’s homepage. The same information is available at the Special Olympics Nebraska website.
